The Berlin-based improvising wind trio Trigger (Chris Heenan, Matthias MÃ¼ller, Nils Ostendorf) was formed in 2009 and works on creating a unitary sound of discrete sonic layers. Through the use of multiphonics, circular breathing, and other extended techniques, Trigger forges a music of gradual depth with sudden shifts in texture and mood. The current direction of the trio is long continuous masses of sound and utilizing site-specific resonances of performance spaces.
